It isn't hard to do with a 100t spur, though it will require some JRXS-size pinions (43-51t). For the record, the _smallest_ pinion that will mesh with a 100t in a 007 is 33t*(Corrected)*.

That can't be right, I have a 96T spur using a 35T pinion on my '007. Both of those are slightly smaller, and I can go down on pinion more, just haven't tested yet.

kn76, thanks for catching me in error. I just went and tried my damnedests to mesh the smallest possible pinion, and I ended up with 33t on the 100t spur. I think the chamfered heads on the screws were preventing me from moving the motor closer to the spur the last time I tried.

I just got a Parma Ultimate Bumper made of Hard Composite Foam part number 8053, and it is as hard as a rock!! I am concerned that it will transfer shock loading to the chassis rather than absorbing it. Is it the right thing to use?


Yes....that bumper will still deform under impact...

Wow...That's weird...replied to sportssedanman and it put my reply ahead of his question? lol

I've used the Parma bumpers the last couple of years and have had no problems.

Thanks for the reassurance guys.

Hey ChrisP, maybe you have that mythical (until now) ability to feel the future before it happens. Well I guess if you were feeling the future, it would have to be before it happens or it would not be the future, it would be the present or the past.

The existing spring set was confirmed in the flash presentation as being compatible with the 008, the other compatibility details should be confirmed soon.

I think the axles/dogbones in the '007 and '008 Carpet Editions are the same. The documentation for the '008 mentions the axles as "the standard" size. Rubber EU editions have longer axles to place them further inward in the diff.

Default 5 or 6

Just asking for some opinions on switching from 6 to 5 cells.
I am currently running 6 cells but i am hesitant to start running 5 because i might lose some speed.
We are swithing to 5 cells at the start of next year but was wondering if i should change earlier to get up to speed.
Is 5 cells slower or do i just put my 3.5 in instead of my 4.5,i have heard you also gear up 2 pinions on your normal 4.5 gearing.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

sorry if i am bringing up an old topic again but after reading through all the posts on the Orion 3200 Li-Po pack i am a little confused.....from what i can tell it will fit in my 007 US Spec with some hacking on the rear bulkhead right? do i have to do anything to the battery case along with that? and also if anyone out there can snap a picture of the 3200 in a US Spec car i would almost be willing to pay cash for it so i have something to go on

Yep, it will fit with the Right Rear Bulkhead forward tab hacked off. You will need to space up the battery bar posts about 2-3mm. The battery slots will need to be filed down at an angle, for a normal Nimh battery for the LiPo 3200 to lay flat on the chassis. Also, the battery retainers on the corner of the battery will need to be trimmed. Removed the inner curved portion of the retainers, and completely remove the center battery retainers.

Picture posted soon.
